maybe that is true with other tangs but my yellow tang will 'EAT' anything. her diet mainly consists of nori and such but she'll eat mysis, flake food, cyclop-eeze, blood worms, brine shrimp, krill and anything else that is added to the tank.dnjan said:What are you feeding the plate? Tangs tend to be vegetarians, and often leave meat alone when they realize it is meat.

it would be rather difficult to stop my tang from eating meat. she darts in and out at anything i put in the tank for other fish.dnjan said:Concerning Tangs eating "meat" - Not sure that is really good for their digestive tracts.
i definitely agree with you on the varied diet....all my fish get a great mix of fresh, frozen and various other types of food.dnjan said:As long as she is getting a good, balanced diet (and the meat protein hasn't killed her already), it should be fine. I'm not sure, however, that I consider being plump to be necessariuly a sign of health. Could be she is consuming every and anything to get missing nutrients. I believe that is how I lost a plump, varigated rabbitfish. Since then, I have tried to be more concientious about the varied. vitamin-enriched diet.
